Lady Wolf's comment on 2015-02-01 09:02 AM
Truth be told assassins aren't really my gig, but this one was originally a coffee stained NPC print out from my old Gm binder, I thought she would work well for the 500 word sub and manged to coerce Silvy into helping make it so. (Never you mind how! :P)

Her original assassin tools were improvised weapons from her surroundings she would use to make a kill up close and from an unexpected angle/way. Unfortunately the 500 word limit axed the assassination of a CEO with a soup spoon vignette and more of her background of why she became an assassin.

Fun challenge tho, looking forward to the next one! Go to Comment

HIDDEN DANGER # 11 Ragweed
A plant must have some interesting qualities if it only grows in disturbed areas. Such is the case with ragweed, a plant that connotes a drippy nose and runny eyes for many. A wry sense of humor led to ragweed being given the generic name Ambrosia, meaning “food of the gods”. Its rosinous leaves are regularly eaten only by insects, though horses and cows will consume them if other food is scarce.

Giant ragweed (Ambrosia trifida) may be l0 feet tall with large deeply lobed leaves. Common, or dwarf, ragweed (A. artemisifolia) is shorter, usually four feet tall, and has delicately dissected leaves. The flowers of both are in the junction between leaves and stems while the pollen is produced in upside-down cup-like structures lining the branches. Ragweed pollen is distributed by the wind and is most responsible for allergies during the fall.

If traveling through the swamps one may encounter large growths of ragweed. The pollen has a bad habit of sticking to your clothes, hair, and skin, so it could leave a golden trail behind you that seasoned hunters will be able to use to track your movements.

Stirred up by the wind, the pollen can cause allergic reactions in people.

Ragweed pollen could potentially conceal stink moss beneath a find golden layer, creating the potential for an unpleasant surprise. Go to Comment

Good read and information provided. I added the bit about ragweed because here in south Louisiana certain swamp areas turn a lovely golden color thanks to all the ragweed blooming. It is pretty to look at but it is murder on the sinuses. Go to Comment

I love swamps! I think this is a perfect "old school" entry actually! Excellent primer, hitting most of the pertinent points! I cant help but add...since its a 101 on swamps and all...it would have been great if you included a little extra toward the beginning with a little info on the slight differences between...swamp, bog, marsh, and fen, with maybe an image of each. But that's just nitpicking. Great sub!

Is it very interesting? I think it's lame that you commented on Sil's subs, just to help her win the Quest. Go to Comment

My first two research positions ever were as field workers doing surveys and experiments in swamps (wet lands...cause swamp sounds dirty). Some of my co-workers were also in my RPG group and we found great inspiration in our swamp land work place. I haven't read your post yet put was so enthused by the title that I wanted to gush. It is a challenge for the GM to make the geography of wilderness expand to something more than a grid and applaud efforts to help that. Go to Comment

While I appreciate the kindness of voting on my subs Serena, I would prefer it if you actually read them first, and voted based on how they compare to the other quest entries and not on a misplaced desire to bolster my rankings. Go to Comment

Good stuff, a lot of detail. One big thing you left out: the folk who LIVE in a swamp. There are always folks who make a living there, fishing and maybe gathering the rare plants that only grow there ... criminals hiding out where they know the law will never find them ... rebels who know every channel and matted island.

I like the 'Hidden Dangers' area the most. It gives you some different things that player characters can encounter while traveling through a swamp. The ideas aren't necessarily fights, but more obstacles. Go to Comment

A party of adventurers walk along late on an open plain, on a moonless night. Abruptly, War screams, the clanging of metal and death-cries are heard. It is an open plain, and nothing is seen, but the sound of a huge battle is all about them. The sounds continue for a half hour before stopping as suddenly as they started. What was it? Perhaps the ghouls of a long-gone battle, reliving their unfortunate last memories...
